Family Makes Good on Dying Family Member’s Last Wish: Leave $500 Tip

“A dying man’s last wish was to make someone else’s day. After his death, the family of Aaron Collins fulfilled his wish to go have pizza and leave their server a $500 tip,” according to Yahoo News.

“The story surfaced on the blog Fark: 30-year-old Collins, a computer technician who died July 7, had no money to make his wish come true. So his family raised the cash through a website after just a few days and then made good on his request. At Puccini’s restaurant in Lexington, Ky., the family lunched on pizza, and then presented one very lucky waitress with $500.

The video captures the moment. As the cash is handed over, the waitress keeps asking, “Are you serious?” She then promises to share her good fortune with other restaurant staff, and says, “You know, I’m going to be telling this story for the rest of my life.”
